170130 Fox League Classic Greg  Alexander 2010

A Premiership-winning captain and living legend of the Penrith Panthers, Greg Brandy Alexander is now one of the most recognised Rugby League and general sports commentators across television and radio has been a key figure in the FOX SPORTS NRL team since 2000.

After taking out the league’s Rookie of the Year award in 1984, Alexander’s meteoric rise in the game was complete when in just his second year of first grade he broke the club record for the most points scored in a season (194) and was awarded the coveted Dally M Player of the Year.

A majestic playmaker and gifted number seven, he captained the Panthers to their first ever Premiership in 1991 with a memorable 19-12 win over the Canberra Raiders in the Grand Final. His brief representative career saw him make four appearances for New South Wales between 1989 and 1991 and six appearances for Australia.

When he retired in 1999, Alexander was only the second player in history, behind Terry Lamb, to register 100 tries and 1000 points for the one club.

In 2018, Alexander will continue to be the key analyst for NRL matches and join Thursday Night League, Friday Night Footy, Super Saturday and NRL Sunday Ticket at various times throughout the year.

‘Brandy’ is also a sports anchor for Sydney radio station 2UE and hosts weekday evenings sports show Sports Today alongside former Manly half John Gibbs.
